I'm curled in a ball, hugging my knees
Though no one will notice, it's not what you see
I go through the motions, and I do them well
But my eyes are empty, I'm surprised you can't tell.
I long for the breath that will warm my skin
I have far been colorless, wondering of sin
My thoughts come apart as I try to mend,
Every motion distracted by the efforts I bend.
I imagine my purpose, bare & resolved
Try to release deep intention evolved
But my lungs fill with water, all actions drowned
As I silence my dreams from making a sound.
Expel me your energy, thoughts and narration
Glue me to together so I feel no temptation
Anchor your mouth too close to my ear
And whisper me life cause I can't seem to hear.
I beg for delay, I'm not ready to concede
I'm calculating which muscles I need to breathe
Then I will emit all the life I can give
When I discover what I need to live.
